Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Problems with vehicle's transmission. Toyota over filled the transmission by 1 1/2 quarts. The consumer was told that it was okay. Transmission fluid started to drain. The vehicle started having troubles climbing on inclines. There were vibrations when driving 50 mph and over, and constant flats and blow outs occurred. (destiny Michelin) there were also problems with the power steering, struts, and the rotors.
